Q:

Where do crickets live?

A:

Crickets live in marshes, forests, swamps and deserts all over the world, with over 120 species in the United States alone. Crickets thrive in moist, humid areas with an abundance of plants. They can often be found underneath rocks and plants, inside of logs and along roadsides.

Crickets can live up to a year or longer, but typically only survive a single winter. The insects are affected by temperature fluctuations and tend to be most active on warmer evenings, during which they chirp louder and more rapidly. Crickets are omnivorous and consume varied diets of insects, seeds, leaves, animal carcasses and fruits.
